"BG was 98 this morning (low carb really works for me) and I'll hold off exercise until this pm. We'll see where it's at before lunch. Thanks FHS, I found the Berstein chapter on exercise. Have only been on this diet for couple of…"
"Hey Fritz. Could be DP like Badmoon suggests, or it could be a response to the type of exercise itself. Lot's of people report that certain types of exercise will cause post-exercise spiking. It seems to be an individual thing regarding the…"
"Thanks BadMoonT2, I guessed the 122 reading at 8:30 or so was past the DP. It was at least 10:30 by the time I got to the gym. Have ordered Berstein's book in the hardcopy -- a little tough to find things in a "reader"."
